During the Bled conferences, Business Models have attracted a lot of attention. The discussion has moved from understanding the core concepts towards designing and implementing business models. Business models have become a common topic, with concepts and approaches becoming main stream, and connected to more generic research approaches and design perspectives, and business model tooling is becoming more important. In this paper, we provide examples of tooling with regard to Business Model road-mapping, Business Model stress-testing, Business models and Agile software development, and Business models and financial tooling. We also illustrate future research by combining Business Model analysis with Enterprise Architecture. The aim of this paper is to show how business model research is complemented by tooling and to develop an outlook for a research agenda that may be relevant to participants to the Bled conference.
